Workshop Overview

It’s been many years of canceled trips and missed destinations, but that doesn’t mean the magic of travel is out of our reach. In this workshop, we will study and practice the aspects of travel writing that transport readers and engage their curiosity, submersing them in a specific place and time. Whether that be a neighboring town, a bustling Ghanaian market, the majesty of Yosemite's trees, or a return to a childhood backyard, this workshop will provide writers of all levels with a deep look at what makes powerful travel writing fly off the page—specificity, senses and story.
